OUR COURSES

LEADERSHIP by DESIGN: Environmental Solutions and Sustainability

BECOME THE LEADER YOU ARE MEANT TO BE!

Moving toward a sustainable future requires effective action now.We need serious people who know how to succeed and how to work together for maximum impact. If you are serious about making a difference for our future and yourself, this course will strengthen you and help you on your path.

We have identified eight key topics which frequently are not adequately understood and addressed by professionals in the field. These topics have been chosen based on more than 35 years of work and reviewed and refined by our Advisers and friends based on more than 200 years of real life experience in environmental management and sustainability. We want our students to avoid the mistakes many have made before them by showing them these keys to creating and implementing effective solutions.

We use a combination of workshops, presentations, site visits, discussions and case study based workshops to help you learn to better apply the eight keys to your projects and ideas, and to find leverage for making your ideas into reality. Many of these case studies will be those provided by the students themselves, giving them opportunity to share and develop their ideas and solutions in a constructive and analytical group setting, with critiques by the group, course leader and guest experts - a crucially important experience for real life success.

ECOVILLAGE DESIGN EDUCATION (EDE)

THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME - ENVISION, DESIGN & CREATE an ECOVILLAGE FROM THE GROUND UP!

Greenleaf Education Costa Rica in partnership with INVENIO University is working toward the design and construction of the world's first purpose built educational Ecovillage to be located on a university's main campus.

The "Green Village," will become a center for education, innovation and personal growth. Demonstrations of existing sustainable and low carbon technologies, will exist alongside learning spaces, laboratories, and community shared spaces, all directed at the innovation and development of technologies and practices which move Costa Rica, Central America, and beyond toward a sustainable, prosperous, and just future.

We are offering the Ecovillage Design Education (EDE) course which was conceived and created by Gaia Education Trust. The EDE is organized as a mandala that Gaia Education calls, "the sustainability wheel, encompassing what we perceive to be the four primary dimensions of human experience - Worldview, Ecological, Social, and Economic aspects. Each of these four dimensions contains five modules - twenty subject areas in total.

This is a truly unique opportunity for anyone wising to create healthier communities which respect our planetary boundaries and grow a future of inclusive prosperity.

Program duration – 28 days - 130 contact hours, plus recreational and educational outings included
